mine buzzes in first and second gear between 3 and 4000rpm. doesnt do it in neutral, only in gear. i already ripped off the downpipe shield. any suggestions before i rip the others off? I know this topic has been beaten to death but i thought it was odd it only buzzed when i gear. thanks

Re: I got the buzzing but only when in gear (Jdubs)

I don't think this is a heat shield problem, otherwise it would make buzzes in neutral too (usually).

Re: I got the buzzing but only when in gear (Jdubs)

I have the same problem but my car only buzzes about 3000rpm. It is the heat sheild, one of the bolts that anchors it to the exhaust manifold is broken so it vibrates at mid range rpms. I suspect it could buzz at idle if the portion of the shield were close enough to the manifold. It should be a quick fix though, any muffler shop can do the repair.
